    Of course Trump is getting a bump. Boris is getting a bump in the UK even though IMO he was too late acting. The political toll will come later when we are coming out of this and there is time to reflect. There will be a political cost to pay.

    He called the Democrats politicisation of the virus a hoax, not the virus itself.

    Yes he did downplay the virus at the start, like most countries did. Early data didn't show much to get worried about outside of China, I think most predicted that it was mostly contained there

    I wasn't confused, I meant that figure you linked

    I guess you fall into the judgemental ***** category

    Was the "politicisation" of the virus when the Democrats were calling it a potentially serious thing, whilst Trump was busy ignoring the warnings of pretty much every medical expert in the world?

    I do fear your memory may be getting as bad as the dear leader.

    This sums it up nicely. It also supports @Werewolf point as well.

    That sounds like politics not a hoax, given where the US is now with even Pence saying they are on the same path as Italy then it wasn’t a hoax at all.

    Trump has sought to downplay COVID from the start with analogies from flu to car accidents, his position has pivoted.

    Trump clearly said the media & Democrat hysteria about the government coronavirus response was a hoax, not the virus

    But it wasn’t hysteria was it, the current position the US finds itself in shows that.

    If the US weren’t facing a disaster than the democrats response could have been passed off but the US is facing a nightmare.

    So the democrats calling Trump out wasn’t a Hoax it was a political opposition holding him to account

    How do you feel about the US trade war with China?

    I notice you post in the Chinese phone thread on the Mobile Phone forum and you don't buy American like Apple.

    Knowing how his waffling usually goes he was probably verbally yanking himself off, like always.

    Why did Trump get so much push back when he announced planes from China to be banned then? He was called a racist for doing that by Pelosi and Chuck. Explanation?

    Proof? None? Good job. Standard Trump special friend. Unlike trump who has entire websites dedicated to his lies and all the defence force in this thread. Pages and pages of lying. Moron.

    Here's what he said in full context

    …. even Snopes concurs he did not call the virus itself a hoax...

    Where did they call him racist? Biden used the word "xenophobic" but its not clear what part of Trumps tweet he was referring to. Trump was calling it the 'Chinese virus' in that tweet and in a later tweet that Biden replied to he called it the 'foreign virus'.
